N.E.R.D.: No_One Ever Really Dies Album Stream

N.E.R.D.’s No_One Ever Really Dies is here and it is their first album in seven years. There are the much-anticipated collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and guest appearances from Andre 3000, Gucci Mane, Wale and more. N.E.R.D. member Shay Haley described their intentions for the new album:

“With this project, we felt like we had the freedom to do whatever we wanted. When we first discussed diving into this project, it started with mild discussions about the social and musical climate. Then it evolved into us creating a few songs, which weren’t the greatest. They didn’t inspire and invigorate us in the way we wanted, so we scrapped them and went back to the drawing board. We continued to take on this vigorous approach so we could tap into a timeless sound. We want people to have a good time while listening, we want people to dance, to escape the insanity, the divisiveness, the narcissistic chaos. But we don’t want to be to preachy. We essentially just want to have fun.”
